BIENVENIDOS A LA CASA ALQUICIRA
La casa, sin duda, es un personaje más de la película.
Preparando la toma de la llegada de Claudia a la casa.
Así es cómo más o menos quedó la toma.

Mientras todos duermen, nosotros estamos haciendo una película en medio del bosque.
"Night shooting is even more difficult. Everything will have to be lit artificially. The rigging crew is usually joined by the electricians of the shooting crew at least four hours before nightfall. This is because cables have to be laid from the lights to the generators. Because the generators make a lot of noise, they're usually placed fairly far from the set so they don't interfere with the sound department. It's a lot easier and safer to lay the cables in daylight, when you can still see. Many weeks of night shooting exhausts everyone, including the crew. You really can't sleep during the day, or I can't. But there's a wonderful intensity about night shooting. After eleven o'clock, the neighborhood goes to sleep. An here, in the midst of blackness, a group of people are 'painting with light', creating something.
"We shot 'The Seagull' in Sweden. We built Madame Arkadina's house in a clearing in the woods by a lake. There was only one night of shooting. Gerry Fisher, the cameraman, told me to take a long dinner break, since he'd need about an hour and a half to finish lighting once night had fallen. Cameramen can't fine fine-tune their lighting until it's completely dark. An hour after nightfall, I drove out to the set. The road led over a hill. As the car came over the crest, I saw below me a small, concentrated, white-hot diamond. Everything around was black except for this beautiful burst of light, where the set was being lit. It's a sight I'll always remember: people working so hard, all making the same movie, creating, literally, a picture in the middle of a forest in the middle of the night".
